SERBIA WON EUROVISION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [god knows where we'll host it though]

I am so chuffed. And gratified that this happened despite us having some of the most bizarre choreography I have ever seen (aside from the French entry a couple of years back where a woman danced on stilts; that's still unsurpassable to me).

I am even more pleased today of course, having read all the snippy comments in The Guardian.

My favourites:
1) The guy from Turkey griping about 'Europe rewarding Serbia instead of punishing it for genocide of 10 years ago' - because really Turkey? Are you the best place to raise the issue of human rights violations?

2)People who are griping about politics and the waving of the Serbian flag but praising the Ukranian entry (because the lyrics 'sing russia goodbye' are not even remotely political)

3)The bitterness about political voting (surely this is part of the entertainment? And incidentally it doesn't prevent points being awarded to songs that people love, like Finland's entry last year).

4)Anyone who is saying that Eurovision has really let its standards drop. Because as far as I'm concerned the trashyness is the best part.

I'm too young and too recent an immigrant to Europe to properly appreciate the hilarity of Eurovision letting its standards drop, and even I can't stop laughing.

I did see about half a dozen songs on Saturday night — then my shift was over; the only time I'll ever be unhappy to leave work! — and considering that the only thing I'd otherwise heard about it this year was from your blog, I was very excited for you that Serbia won. :-)

I think Eurovision has definitely let its standards drop. I mean, it's not half as trashy as it used to be ;-)
